Cambridge Global Health Partnerships (CGHP) has developed a series of global health partnerships between Cambridge-based healthcare and academic institutions and similar organisations in low- and middle-income countries. These Health Partnerships improve patient outcomes by developing skills and knowledge of healthcare workers.
CGHP’s work contributes directly to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 – ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing for all at all ages. This sustainable model ensures lasting change, benefitting overseas partners, UK volunteers, and healthcare institutions and their patients; a triple win.
CGHP is committed to delivering an ever-increasing positive impact on the communities it serves. Engaging in global health has a huge impact both at home and away; 96% of its volunteers report that their volunteering has developed their communication skills, 91% are better able to manage limited resources, and 86% are refreshed and feel more motivated at work on their return (volunteer feedback 2012-2019).
In addition to its health partnership work, it functions as a hub in Cambridge and the East of England region for those interested in global health, offering events, networking opportunities, grants, and volunteer support.
